Yale pioneers new center for brain, mind health

The New Haven, Conn.-based Yale School of Medicine plans to create a new center for brain and mind health to promote collaboration between departments in both clinical and translational neuroscience, according to a Sept. 9 report from Yale News.

The Yale School of Medicine Center for Brain & Mind Health will be led by a group of five co-founders with work spanning various clinical and translational neuroscience. 

The center focuses on sponsoring public health-oriented research to directly promote better patient outcomes regarding conditions of the brain and mind, emphasizing the diagnosis, management, and treatment of patients. The center will also work on educational initiatives to improve brain and mind health for the public.

Kevin Sheth, MD, Center for Brain & Mind Health co-director, said that the organization hopes to facilitate the investigation, treatment, and recovery of neurological and psychiatric conditions. Dr. Sheth also emphasized the importance of working together and "bringing the diversity of our individual experiences and backgrounds." 

Center leadership also hopes to cultivate productive relationships with the VA Connecticut Healthcare System and the Connecticut Mental Health Center.
